Gaga's "Alejandro" Video is Typical Klein.

When I heard that Lady Gaga had collaborated with fashion photographer STEVEN KLEIN to create a music video for her newest song, Alejandro, I knew it would be something very uh... sexually charged.

Yesterday, when the video was finally released, I heard the shock in my friend's voices as they described to me what they had seen: "All I can say is there are men in fishnets" was the only comment I had to hear to know my prediction would be correct.

Before I show you the video, take a look at some of Klein's typical work......

Now, picture these images in real life and add some Gaga music to it.......you'll have this video.



So, what do you think? Personally, I love it because it just screams Klein. In fact, I see more of Klein's style than Gaga's in this video. Lately, the combination of fashion and film (also known as fashion cinema) has been immensely popular......I'm glad to see that Gaga has embraced this trend by using a fashion photographer to direct this video. In my opinion, Klein brings a high fashion perspective to this video which makes it that much better.

Okay Gaga you have made your statement with your first music video. I am just over her attention seeking crap.
I am hoping that one day she will stop mkaing music and hide in a cave, but I cannot see that happening.

The high fashion element definitely adds to the intensity of the video. I don't see this style working for all artists, but it meshes well with Gaga.

I had mixed feelings last night, but I like it much more tomorrow. It's pretty sexy.

Love Alejandro's D&G shots, so homo-erotic. His style works perfectly with GaGa, mind you she can do no wrong in my eyes!

OMG!! I wish I can dance like that!! The dancing is always my favorite part in lady gaga videos!! So cool! xoxoxoxoxo

I didn't really like the video because noting will ever top bad romance but I thought it was alright I guess.
I thought the trailer was better than the video itself.

Side note: I just love your blog. Your appreciation for high fashion is so refreshing and helpful. Keep up the awesomeness!

alejandro was always quite disturbing for me but well lady gaga does know how to make herself different from other singers, both in style and music and videos. she's got great vocal range tho.

i loveee

I like it because it portrays sexuality in a way that's slightly different to recent videos. Rapper videos, in particular - where it's all girls in tiny bikinis, dancing and grinding. The difference seems significant to me somehow, and I like it.
And it's very GaGa, combining sex and fashion. Completely true to her style. Her fabulous style. Love her.

Ah love Klein and GaGa, awesome!

MJ said...

The whole 'MADONNA!' thing kind of turned me off a bit - Tavi's right, it does all seem a bit too familiar... She is pretty awesome, though.

AttemptingStyle said...

weirdly madonna-esque. but i like it. i dont know that i love gaga, but i do really like this.

Julia said...

I love how vulnerable she looks in this one, almost paradoxically. I dig it.

I appreciate Klein's style, but I'm a little over Lady Gaga lol. I think her best work was Bad Romance.

Lane :) said...

i totally agree with you. it is typical klein. :)

Josie said...

Haha, it not only screams Klein, I think that it also screams Gaga. It might actually be toned down a bit from her usual stuff... "Bad Romance" gave me nightmares!

Nothing wrong with some hot guys in fishnets, I find. Good for Gaga working with the master of visual sensuality!
